Broadband ISP Ogi Pick Nokia to Supply Full Fibre Rollout in Wales

Tuesday, Aug 24th, 2021 (9:35 am) - Score 1,560

UK ISP Ogi (Spectrum Internet), which is currently investing £200m (here) to rollout a Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network to 150,000 premises in South Wales by 2025 (first phase), has today officially chosen Nokia to be their key technology partner (strategic supplier) for network kit etc.

The provider has previously informed us that they will be deploying dual optic combination line cards that enables them to support both XGS-PON and GPON simultaneously on any port of the OLT (Optical Line Terminal), which gives them plenty of flexibility for future upgrades etc.

Today’s announcement thus gives us a bit of additional context for all that. The partnership with Nokia will allow Ogi fit the Nokia ISAM 7360 OLT inside street cabinets, which will help to light the fibre optic cables that will feed broadband and telephone services into homes and businesses.

On top of that, the Nokia G-120G-E ONT (optical modem) – that small box that gets fitted inside your home – will also be used, while business customers should receive the more powerful Nokia XS-010X-Q ONT.

Justin Leese, Chief Technology and Operations Officer for Ogi, said:

“I’m delighted to be working with Nokia as we roll out our network across South Wales. Their products offer great price/performance and scalability for our network as Ogi grows over the coming years, and customer demand for bandwidth increases. We’ve also had great support from their Services team who have been moving at pace with us as we build and test the network.”

Phil Siveter, Nokia’s CEO UK & Ireland, said:

“Broadband connectivity is a necessity today, like water or electricity, and crucial to economic growth. Nokia is playing a leading role in providing broadband access to households and businesses across the UK. We are proud to be supporting Ogi in South Wales with our gigabit broadband solution and services.”

The first three “active cabinets” containing the Nokia equipment will go live during August starting in Haverfordwest in Pembrokeshire on the 16th of August and closely followed by Rhoose in the Vale of Glamorgan and Abergavenny in Monmouthshire.
